Tiger is the biggest jerk in the world. Doesnt deserve the gallery he gets. He smiled one time through out his round. And it was when he came out of the port-a-potty 2min before his teetime. Johnny Vegas tossed me a ball though!

Back to not talking about caddies......

Was again dissapointed in the US golfers in this tournament.  Glad to see Rickie Fowler have a good final round, but really thought Watney, Stricker, Gary Woodland or Lucas Glover may have been better contenders.  Didn't expect Bubba, DJ, or Phil to do much with those narrow fairways and only 2 par 5's.

Not shocked to see McIlroy, Luke Donald, or Westwood in the top 10......again.

One would have thought that Congressional was an ideal course for American golfers to shine, and the only Americans in the top ten were Robert Garrigus and Kevin Chappell. Fowler was the only American with a chance to win at Firestone, and the other two Americans in the top ten (Zach Johnson and David Toms) were two guys you wouldn't think would do well on this kind of layout. It's not a good sign for the USA brigade in Atlanta, since Congressional, Firestone, and Atlanta Athletic Club are three very similar courses.

Strangely enough, there were plenty of American flags on the leaderboard at Royal St. George's. Go figure.

OK, once again ... for such a rule happy sport, makes no sense why golf doesn't mandate players must use the same tool for the job on the greens.    The mechanics of a belly putter are quite different from a conventional putter.       The guys that travel with them have to have a separate hard case for their putters - they don't even fit in the golf bag - that alone should be enough to ban the dastardly contraptions from the face of the earth ...

If you're going to mandate one shaft length, then you might as well mandate one head shape, too. Back and through, how is that so different? The standard length for a belly putter is 43", how long is your driver?

I'm getting tired of people hyping Rickie Fowler to death. Let him win a regular season event first. Then I will stick the constant major talk. I still see him as the 5th best of the "younger generation", behind Rory, Jason, Ryo and Matteo. And my opinion won't be changing until he actually puts 4 rounds together and wins.

(I'm not talking about you FowlPlay personally, but rather all the Rickie Fowler hype machine people out there)

No one here is hyping him, he's played well as of late. He's a good pick - I would pick him over Matteo any day.

Read the last thing I said

And I'm sure I've seen a few people hyping him here anyway.

Rickie before Matteo? Certainly on current form...but overall? Each to their own, I guess.

Agreed. I don't care about the clothes or the hair, he's consistently playing good golf and if he keeps playing good golf he's going to win soon.

Ryo is over-rated IMO. He is a great golfer, but over-rated.

If Rickie was wearing Dustin Johnson clothes I think he would have received 1/3 of attention he has now! :D

    • You don't get to lay in bed with murderous human rights abusers and then expect to get a favor from the very golf establishment you are trying to disrupt with said bed partner.
    • Meanwhile in NJ, it’s going to be 90° this weekend when I play. It’s 50° today. Weather is weird.
    • Keep that stuff away from Michigan!  We're wet enough in my area.
    • The noise thing is not that big of a deal for me. I do not go to the golf course to be at a quiet place. Maybe it is because I spent 8 years playing in a league that ran right along a major road and was a very compact course that you really were always going to have noise around you. As long as a group of people do not ride up to like with in 30 yards of you and start being noisy. I have no issue with noise coming from the previous green, adjacent tee box or hole.  Honestly, it is a waste of energy to get up set over such trivial things.
